One of the options giving to United Way donors is planned giving. I have made sure that the Callaway County United Way is a beneficiary in my will.

The United Way provides several wonderful services for residents of Callaway County. Our church frequently donates food to SERVE and for their annual Christmas efforts to provide gifts for the underpriviledged. I make donations through my employer each time I am paid because this is an organization that provides so much for so many.

The Callaway County United Way gave me a FamilyWize card. I've save thousands of dollars on my medications just in the last 12 months. I'm diabetic and have been told by insurance companies that I'm uninsurable at any price. But with 7 meds that I have to take every day, I wouldn't make ends meet without the FamilyWize card!

Because the Callaway County United Way funds SERVE in our community, my family gets healthy meals for next to nothing. We don't need help with groceries every week, but if one of the kids gets sick, we're in trouble. Thank you, United Way. My whole family thanks you.

Callaway United Way did this program called Woman2Woman. Because of that I got a new outfit to go on job interviews with through SERVE and the Clothes Cupboard. How cool is that. I got the job, too. Thanks CCUW

I like this organization because they don't spend money on overhead. They don't pay rent or utilities or any of that because the boss runs the whole shootin' match out of her home. What a great investment. The money I give goes to people who NEED it, not the electric company.

The Callaway County United Way makes an exceptional difference in our community. The directors, volunteers, and members all strive to to give a better quality of life for all the people of Callaway County. They are always planning and campaigning to bring in more resources for our people. I once served as a volunteer for a United Way commercial. It was a positive and fulfilling experience.

The United Way campaign is the most effective and economical way to support hundreds of social, health and human service programs in Callaway County. The quality of life that we all enjoy would greatly diminish if United Way services were not available.

I don’t have to decide which charity is the most important.
They ALL play a vital role in our community and one gift to the United Way will help all the agencies to deliver services to people in need.
Payroll deduction makes giving both easy and affordable.
For as little as $1 a week, I can change someone's life.

Our local United Way is run by volunteers who live in Callaway County. They conduct the research, set strategic planning goals, run the community campaign, and make funding decisions. These volunteers review the United Way's monthly operations, serve on a variety of working committees, and the Board of Directors. The Callaway County's one paid staff person provides support and continuity.

After reading through the majority of the reviews I discovered that noboy has mentioned that a donation to the Callaway County United Way is tax-deductible. April 15th, tax day, is coming up and that is also a good fact about the United Way. Not the most important one but a good one.

My Aunt Lou isn't able to drive any more. Callaway County United Way provides funding so that she can get to and from her doctor appointments in Columbia. I have to work. My parents have to work. If it weren't for the CCUW, someone would have to take off to get her to these appointments. It's a great program.

My mother is a shut in. She has a hard time caring for herself but we want her to live independently as long as she can. CCUW funds provide the funding for nutritious meals that are delivered to her every day. Without the CCUW, my mother would probably have to be in a nursing home or assisted living. I thank God every day for the CCUW

Because of funding from the CCUW I got the counseling I needed. I'd fallen into a drug scene and couldn't get myself out. Finally I found one of the CCUW agencies and because of them I'm clean today. The CCUW provides funding so the agency can give me a sliding scale, based on my income. Even I can afford the counseling I needed.

You may believe that United Way services are designed for people living in poverty. The truth is one in four people in Callaway County will benefit from a United Way funded agency this year. It may be the co-worker sitting beside you, it may be your friend, your neighbor, your family member, or one day, it might be you. The United Way provides valuable services for everyone in our community.

The United Way is uniquely positioned to help our community because they know how and where funding is needed. They provide vital support to well-known non-profits such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as non-nationally known charities who likely wouldn’t otherwise exist without United Way funding.

When you partner with the United Way, you're assured of making the greatest impact possible. Through your gift, more children achieve success in school, more seniors are able to stay in their own homes, and more of the most vulnerable citizens receive the support they need to live productive, self-sufficient lives. United Way provides leadership, accountability and a focus on results. A United Way contribution is invested carefully in proven programs that work. Knowledgeable volunteers regularly review and evaluate United Way and the United Way supported programs to ensure financial integrity and effectiveness.

The YMCA of Callaway County is becoming a wonderful place for everyone! They not only have terrific workout & social programs, but are also beginning a community garden and children's play area. My children and I have benefitted from the YMCA. I sure hope they are able to get the extra funding - it will be put to good use for many, many people!

Ever since we were young, we've been asked the hypothetical question, "What would you do with a million dollars?" (or something similar to that), and just because it sounded admirable, we would answer, "Give some to charity." 'When the list of charities in our community is presented to us, it can be complicated to keep up with what charity serves what purpose. However, if we donate to the United Way we are giving to 13 local charities at once.

The Callaway County United Way assures the availability of an entire network of human services. For example: A homeless family needs a roof over its head and food and clothing. If you give directly to your favorite agency, you can make this happen. But what if this family also needs day care, and counseling to leave the shelter? No one agency can do all this. United Way makes sure all these services are available from the temporary bed to the long-term solution.
